Polyurethane 101

Polyurethane (PU), often referred to as simply urethane, is a versatile engineered elastomer offering excellent physical properties a and wide range of hardness. As a castable material, urethane can be poured into molds achieving nearly any desirable shape. 

Properties

  • High Abrasion Resistance
  • Shock and Impact Resistance
  • Cut and Tear Resistance
  • High Load Capacity
  • Oil & Water Resistance
  • Non-marking
  • Machinability

Common Uses

  • Wheels
  • Seals & Plugs
  • Roll Coverings
  • Coil Pads
  • Bottle Grippers
  • Scrapers

Urethane Hardness / Durometer Range

Shore “A”     10 – 95    Ranging from gummy bear to skateboard wheels

Shore “D”     60 – 75   Ranging from skateboard wheels to a bowling ball

Additionally, the versatility of urethane allows for multiple processing and casting techniques.  Hand mixing and automatic processing equipment are used to formulate urethane compounds to the desired properties. 

  • Spincast urethane is an additional method of casting urethane to achieve tight tolerances and bubble-free parts.
